You're about to discover a state of horror and suspense, where ancient evils lurk in the Rocky Mountains and a classic novel inspired by a certain Colorado hotel continues to scare and thrill. Where the towering statue of a cobalt blue mustang with demonic red eyes rears back and dares you to cross its path. Its name is Blucifer, and it demands a sacrifice.

What secrets does it guard? What omen does it portend? What dark stories does it inspire?

This souvenir book delves into the mystery, offering original tales and poetry about the sinister statue written by some of the best horror talent in the state. You'll also find essays and anecdotes offering introductions to Colorado's horror community and insight into the writing and publishing process.
